UTAR Hospitals boast ultramodern radiological and imaging equipment with state-of-the-art technology and is managed by a dedicated team of specialist radiologists and technologists helmed by a highly qualified experienced senior radiological consultant. For concerned mothers, we also provide non-invasive tests detecting major chromosomal issues via maternal blood evaluation – prenatal screening with biochemical markers and risk evaluation.
With a currently virtually paperless and filmless department, UTAR Hospitals radiological specialists use the current RIS (Radiology Information System) and PACS (Picture Archiving Communication System). Once the investigation has concluded, images arrive at both radiologist and physician computers for interpretation. This allows UTAR Hospitals to save time in the management of a patient's condition.
Each report and image interpretation is made available digitally at all times, reducing the chance of losing a film or report or mixing up results. Each subsequent investigation can be compared with previous ones at the click of a button.
